Food always tells a story. What we eat today recalls where we came from, spotlights what we value, and connects us to each other in remarkable ways. Jennifer Hill Bookers hibiscus infused lemonade is a delicious nod to freedom and the power of community.
Fonio is an ancient grain grown in West Africa, and Chef Pierre Thiam is bringing it to the global market. It's a climate resilient crop that tastes a lot like couscous and can be prepared in many creative ways.
DIG featured the Moringa Fonio Chips in our 2021 Cocktails & Castoffs AT HOME event because we grow moringa in many of our gardens. Promoting biodiverse agriculture is critical to the longterm health and wellness of land and people.
Moringa might just be the definition of superfood. Not only is it packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, protein, and more, it's also drought-resistant and quick growing. DIG grows it in many of our gardens and KuliKuli is a great supplier for it in the US. Just like this product, we teach our farmers how to dry it and process it into a powder. Farmers add it to weaning foods and use it as a regular nutrition supplement.
All the good stuff from the moringa powder but with a spoonful of sugar...or rather chocolate.
